Why does the hetrochromatin material of chromatin remain unexpressed during mitosis or meiosis?

Heterochromatin has been associated with several functions, from gene regulation to the protection of the integrity of chromosomes; some of these roles can be attributed to the dense packing of DNA, "which makes it less accessible" to protein factors that usually bind DNA or its associated factors.
Some questions about the stages of meiosis (germ cell division to create gametes) and mitosis (somatic [body] cell division). This quiz is intended for those who have had at least final year of high school level Biology. Have fun!
